Electricity as the Basis of Behavior


Everything about the behavior of these bacterium is in direct response to energy proper, nothing interim such as digestion to reduce something to its energetic essence, it begins and ends with essence. Could the behavior of animals evolved to be different from such a platform in that their minds are configured to reduce complex context to a simple and underlying energetic template? And is it possible to intuit this energetic dynamic at work in the complex doings of animals (most especially collective swarm-like behaviors) were one to learn to not project thoughts onto the things that animals do?

    Indeed it should be possible if we considered your theory in terms of the physical sciences. Then we might be able to grasp that terms like “stress” mean a force acting on a body, rather than jumping to the the psychological construct that we’ve ascribed the same term to.

    If we examine it through the myopic lens of the meta-science of animal cognition (perhaps this should be renamed the “animals are stupid humans” principle), all we’ll see is gibberish.

    I found the “electricity as the basis of behavior” to be very interesting…we are all energy beings. We just have to learn to accept ways of knowing beyond or outside of our usual definition of thinking.

    I am not sure that the article referenced below applies directly to the thread above, however subatomic and sub-cellular activities/communications must have something in common.
    August 2014 issue of Scientific American “A New Kind of Inheritance” by Michael K. Skinner

    I found it most interesting that exposure to harmful chemicals, stress and other factors can result in changes that are detectable in future offspring without changing the genetic code. these acquired changes are called epigenetic changes. They control which genes are turned on or off and these changes can be passed on to future generations.

Books about Natural Dog Training by Kevin Behan

In Your Dog Is Your Mirror, dog trainer Kevin Behan proposes a radical new model for understanding canine behavior: a dog’s behavior and emotion, indeed its very cognition, are driven by our emotion. The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says, or does; it responds to what the owner feels. And in this way, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions. Behan demonstrates that dogs and humans are connected more profoundly than has ever been imagined — by heart — and that this approach to dog cognition can help us understand many of dogs’ most inscrutable behaviors. This groundbreaking, provocative book opens the door to a whole new understanding between species, and perhaps a whole new understanding of ourselves.
  Natural Dog Training is about how dogs see the world and what this means in regards to training. The first part of this book presents a new theory for the social behavior of canines, featuring the drive to hunt, not the pack instincts, as seminal to canine behavior. The second part reinterprets how dogs actually learn. The third section presents exercises and handling techniques to put this theory into practice with a puppy. The final section sets forth a training program with a special emphasis on coming when called.
